 Great space for camping and the kids had plenty of space to play football and rounders.

Close to a road which was noisy during the day and evening but quiet at night.

Only one toilet open but reluctantly the owner opened the second toilet after some persuading. You need your own toilet paper.

No washing up facilities which is a shame as there is plenty of space for it at the site. The two showers were basic but warm.

 Site was rural and perfectly placed for viviting York and the coast.

Basic facilities - only one toilet was open for a site that filled up quickly over the weekend and no dishwashing facility.

No bins on first day, although owner said they were there (another camper also asked if we knew where bins were!).

We have a VW camper and 4m bell tent, I stated this on my original email and was charged accordingly.

Owner on last day then said she should have charged more because it was a tent not an awning.

Lovely site, would stay again

 Friendly welcome. Helpful shop with basic requirements.

Great location for York, racecourse, Beningbrough and more.

Local pub with fantastic bar meals a mile walk down a reasonably quiet road.

Need a torch at night though!

Reviewer: Nickitom06 1 review from this member

 Found this lovely little site recently and loved it so much we're going back this weekend! It is so quiet it was easy to relax. It's near enough to York so you can enjoy it too.

It should be noted that the site now has showers and electric

The owners are always available to give recommendations about the area.

Would definitely recommend!

Reviewer: Cheesyball 3 reviews from this member

 This was our second visit to this site, Its a nice field, easy to peg and mostly flat, just a few small bumps. The toilet is a real toilet and not a portaloo which is good and has a little cold water sink for washing n teeth. The camp fire pits are lovely to sit around and I think this is the main reason for us visiting this site. The wood and kindling available from the house next door is extremely cheap and burns well and for a long time.

I find the site weird, in the sense, no matter how warm the day has being the grass gets very damp as soon as the sun has gone. We stayed 2 nights in August last year and 2 nights end of May.

But that's what wellys are for and at 6 a night its a cracking site.

Oo just a little pitching tip, try to stay near the fence or in the smaller field because although the car noise isn't a problem the angle of the road makes the headlights seem like they are coming right at your tent.

 This is a fantastic little site about 8 miles north of York. The owner was friendly and helpful and offered advice about the local area.

The cost was a very reasonable 7 a night.

Fires are allowed which makes a nice change.

There is a Pub 10-15 min walk away

One toilet but no showers or electric. Cold water tap and Chemical disposal point. Everything nice and clean

There is no electric at all on the site and the roads nearby so be sure to take several torches.

No complaints at all and will certainly return.

 Had two great stays at Fox this month, Just at the edge of Huby village, this is a recently opened site with things looking good for the future, level and easy to peg pitches with plenty of room.

Single toilet and no showers or washing up sinks but the price reflects this. Recently planted hedging and small garden plot.

Just over the road is a nice walk to fishing ponds through a forest, under a mile to the too expensive village pub, 3. 40 for rubbish lager! About two miles to Easingwold which I havent explored yet.

The site has fire pits for campfires with logs available at a nearby house. I would recommend taking a fire bucket or extinguisher as a precaution, your tent may be fire resistant but an ember could still melt a hole!

 Just returned from visiting this small fantastic camp site.

We just spent 1 night here after reading the other reviews were not at all disappointed.

The lady who owns the site was there to meet us she is really pleasant and couldn't have been more helpful.

We really enjoyed sitting round the camp fire and got the logs from the sawmill just up the road, enjoyed it so much we got another bag.

There is no play area for children but they all played together. This was a great experience for them as they are used to electrics.

Great night will return.

Reviewer: Lurcher Mac 50 reviews from this member

 Spent two nights at Fox Covert and had a great time. Booked this site due to being able to have a camp fire. Fantastic! wish more places were like this site and allowed camp fires.

The site is basic but they're the sort of sites that we like best. There is a toilet with a cold water tap, CDP (with a tap next to it for washing out) and a drinking water tap. The site is next to a road but it didn't bother us. Hedging has been planted which, when it grows, will provide screening from the road.

There are public footpaths into the woods and it is safe to exercise a dog off the lead. Our dog had a great time running around and snored very loud all night!

Huby has a small shop/P.O. But we didn't get to use it as it closes at 12.30 on Saturdays and we'd gone to the pub for lunch instead! There is a Co-op supermarket in Easingwold which is only 4 miles away.

There is a chippy in Huby as well as the pub that serves good food. If walking back from the pub at night, take a torch. It's a short walk but there are no street lights near the site.

York is only 9 miles away and the Park and Ride is great for taking out the hassle of finding parking in York.

Overall, this is a great site and we would be happy to return for another stay.

Reviewer: Cuddlytiger 1 review from this member

 Just got back from a night at this site, and it is a beautiful, small and tranquil place.

Owner was very helpful and friendly. It only has one toilet and no showers but this was fine because there was only one other family there. The site is only big enough for about 6 tents but if you want to escape it all this is perfect.

They have fire pits near each pitch and a house about 5 mins up the road sells wood for 3.50 for a big bag. Very easy to access York and the pitch only cost 6. I would highly recommend this site.
